As the protest entered the 31st day Monday, some 100 of those in dharna arrived at the private bank and indulged in mass withdrawal of money and sought immediate withdrawal of CAA, resulting in anxious moments for a while.
They also cautioned to withdraw money from all other banks, if the Centre failed to repeal the act, even as nearly 100 policemen mwere deployed in the area.
Meanwhile, about 500 Muslims petitioned the Sub-collector in Pollachi in this district, Monday.
They came in a group to the office of sub collector, creating tense moments. However, they submitted the petition and left.
